Defining how much memory is requested for the installation or update is kind of
academic debate. It always depends on many factors such as
* how many things user change
* how many times does he change them
* how many packages are selected for the installation
* how many add-ons are selected for the installation
* ...

My testings with optimized logging (almost no logging) said that a computer was
able to be installed (using add-ons) with 170-180 MB of memory (of course,
without swap).

I've tried to use /proc/meminfo to get maximum available memory (waiting for
kernel developers for a correct figure). I hope this is the right way how to
check whether using a new Add-On product is possible :)
